Welcome to my website

It has been a privilege to represent the people of East
Bristol as your Member of Parliament for the last ten years. As from the
dissolution of parliament on Monday 30th March, I am no longer your Member of
Parliament but am standing for re-election on 7th May. This website cannot,
under election rules, be used or updated by me during the election campaign,
although you can still browse the archive. My office will continue to deal with
urgent casework but I will not be able to hold constituency surgeries during
the campaign. I can be contacted on kerry4bristoleast@gmail.com
or via my Facebook page - www.facebook.com/Kerry4MP.

Welcome to my website. You can use this site to find out how to contact me, or to find about more about me and Bristol East. 

It also includes regular updates on issues and campaigns in which I am involved and, in the news section, what I have been doing in Bristol and in Westminster. You can also use this site to access my blog.

On the surgeries page there is some useful information on what to do if you need help with a particular problem, and on the local heroes page you can find out more about what individuals and community organisations are doing to make Bristol East a better place. 

You can also vote in my monthly poll, 
or subscribe to receive my newsletter.

To watch what's going on in Parliament right now, click here and then on the House of Commons.

The week ahead

Just by way of an update to Monday’s post… Another invite has arrived. WWF are the culprits again! PRASEG & WWF-UK Event – The economics of climate change policy: what are the overall costs and benefits of the UK meeting its carbon budgets?Wednesday 10 September 2014, 17:00 – 19:00, Committee Room 6, House of Commons […]
Just an update to yesterday’s post on mitochrondial disease. I have to say I was rather surprised to see Professor Robert Winston – now Lord Winston – cited in the motion, as he is usually a leading supporter of genetic research. I’ve now seen a Twitter exchange between him – @profrwinston – and Dr Sarah […]
Just before recess I was at a WWF event in Parliament on environmental issues, with rather a large panel of speakers – all male, all white and, with one exception, all middle-aged. I’ve now received an invite to another ‘green’ event, from the Aldersgate Group: a ‘Dragon’s Den’ type event on 11th September with the […]
Later today, after the PM’s statement and a general debate on hospital car parking charges, there will be a debate on “Mitochondrial replacement techniques and public safety”. Here’s a BBC report which explains very simply what it’s about – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-28986843 – and an educational animated video narrated by none other than Bill Nighy http://www.thelilyfoundation.org.uk/animation/ Basically, […]
There’s a review starting on council ward boundaries in Bristol. Due to new housing being built in some areas and demographic changes, some wards are deemed to be far too big – this is particularly an issue in Cabot, Lawrence Hill and Ashley wards – while others are by comparison too small. This could be […]
